Dabang Delhi won: 1
Analysis: Pradeep Narwal is the most prominent player for UP Yodha, but he could only score 5 raiding and one bonus points in his last match against Tamil Thalaivaa. While,the other raider Surendra Gill has shown some positive signs but to do well the overall team needs to bring their A game. Both the above mentioned raiders have two super ten each so far in the tournament, compared to other team's raiders it is low, which is a major concern for the team.
Meanwhile, Naveen Kumar is doing excellent for his team, he achieved super ten in his last outing against Telugu Titans and ended the game with 15 raiding points. Team is yet to register a single loss in the tournament, and have done consistently well throughout.
Conclusion: Dabang Delhi will win the match

Head to Head:
Total Match played: 12
U Mumba won: 6
Telugu Titans: 4
Analysis: The winless Telugu Titans will be facing the mighty U Mumba seeking their maiden win of the tournament. Siddharth Desai's absence due to injury will only add trouble in the upcoming matches of the tournament. Titans narrowly lost their last match against the Dabang Delhi side, although Rajnish Dalal did well with 19 raid points but still it was not good enough to register a win in the match.
Meanwhile, U Mumba has all the stars aligned in their favor. Though, they settled with draws in their last two matches against Haryana Steelers and UP Yodha. U Mumba needs to register some wins in front of their name to climb up the points table.
Conclusion: U Mumba will win the match.

Head to Head:
Total Match played: 4
Gujarat Giants: 3
Patna Pirates: 1
Analysis: Gujarat Giants will have a challenging time while facing Patna Pirates, who are in sublime form and are happily sitting at 3rd place in points table. Monu Goyat is leading the charge for Pirates, as he comfortably leads the charge for the team. He lacked a single point to complete his super ten, and the team had to settle with a tie against Tamil Thalaivas. On the other side, Giants are at the bottom of the table, with three losses, two ties and a single win. They suffered an embarrassing defeat against Puneri Paltans, their dependence on Rakesh Narwal and his constant failure in the season is costing the team. Ajay Kumar and Rakesh did well but were not good enough.
Conclusion: Patna Pirates will win the match.
